View Full Version : Does driving a Jeep defy laws of physics and time...or does it just seem that way?

So I take the top of today as I just got back from Vegas and its 85 degrees with not a cloud in sight. I hop in and run a few quick errands (drop stuff at good will, get gas and stop at store). I was gone for maybe 25 minutes, but man it feels like I was gone for hours. Nothing better than the breeze coming through the top, getting envious looks from the sheep stuck in their metal cans and getting many waves from my fellow jeepers. I just love driving this thing!!!

Hope you all have good weather and a great weekend! :rock:

Driving? Hell, sometimes I just go sit in mine in the garage to feel better. In the summer I've been known to put a camping chair in the back, turn some music on, and "watch" my kids play with the neighborhood kids in the front yard. I get bonus points with the wife for watching the kids and also lower my blood pressure by being in a topless Jeep.

Thanks. Always nice to come home.

Jeep by the Ocean trumps. What I wouldn't give....

But my Hawaii trip is looming on the horizon. :yup:

LOL! Different then what? Different then it would if only sections of it were missing? :thinking: Why don't you take the top off, go for a ride and let me know how THAT feels, and then I'll let you know if it feels any different. :cheesy:

Yup! It's a Jeep thing. I must have sat in my Jeep for an hour today in the parking lot at work! I was stress free the rest of the afternoon and before I knew it, it was time to go home. :yup:

Thanks Mike!

I couldn't agree more with you all. It's definitely therapeutic. Top off, jams blaring and some open road. Heck I'll gladly volunteer for some honey-do's just to get out and cruise. I do wish more So Cali Jeeps waved back tho....

Glad to hear you made it home safe Mike, with all that talk on the top of the hill you may have thought you might not make it home at all :cheesy:. Gonna go put the top down on mine now and go get a cold air intake :D makes the air going through my hair go much faster and therapeutic...

Haha, your hairline looks like a returned chia pet at the dollah store.:cheesy:

Just shave all of it off instead of the spotty growth thing.:yup:

My favorite thing is having the top down and the doors off. Love the way my jeep is like two different vehicel's.

Meet up with Sharkey yesterday and had a chance to get offroad and head up the back way to one of the local reservoirs. Nothing real challenging, but you got to love to be able to get offroad in 10-15 minutes and then spend the morning in places most people have never been and probably couldn't find.

It's not the ocean but still nice!

Does this count as carnage? LOL!

It is very nice to live out west like we do! Every week that I am on the east coast for work, I can't help but think about how lucky we are to be within minutes of being on a trail, in a rock garden or boulders, driving in a wash, on the bank of a lake or in the mountains! I don't think I could ever live anywhere else :rock:
